AbstractThe inherent nature of wireless communication and the added mobility factor introduces challenges in securing wireless applications. The convergence of communication and ubiquitous environment demand flexibility on various security mechanisms. The need to accommodate vertical hand-off, horizontal hand-off and resource limitations further restricts the ability to provide acceptable levels of security. We propose a number of novel solutions, which are applicable in different scenarios. They include Unified authentication mechanism with EAP framework, Group outlier based IDS, Trust-based models for MANETs and Physiological signal initiated key establishments.
We will describe in detail how low entropy physiological signals can effectively be used for secure key establishment in body area networks. Our proposed protocol has limited inbuilt-error correction mechanism. The test results of such protocol implementation with smart phones in real world environment and range of possible eHealth applications will be discussed.
